Dalkey Castle is located in the heritage town of Dalkey and has living history actors onsite, ready to welcome visitors.

Dalkey Castle includes many living history actors who show visitors many skills and cultural features from the 1500s in Ireland - such as an archer shooting a longbow, a cook making hedgehog pie and a barber surgeon offereing haircuts.

Panoramic views of sea and mountains can be seen from the castle battlements. Visitors can also explore the early Christian church and graveyard, dedicated to St. Begnet.

An interactive timeline in the Heritage Centre is available, beginning from early Christian through Viking, Medieval, Victorian and modern times in Dalkey (available in 12 languages).

The area also features a Writers’ Gallery with literary and creative connections to Joyce, Beckett, Bono, Maeve Binchy.
